Published Oct 13, 2015Vancouver artist Michael Red has built a reliable career under his own name, but the sound sculptor is ready for a new moniker. He's recently started performing experimental ambient music under the name Souns, and ahead of his first cassette he's shared a premiere of the song "Eve."
The near seven-minute composition doesn't reveal a whole lot of structure, but it still actively engages the listener with a long, warm synth warble and some cut-up samples. It's an engrossing deconstruction of composition that reveals a great deal of layers if you listen closely enough.
Listen to "Eve" below. The song will appear on Ambient A, a new cassette and digital release arriving from Deep Sea Mining Syndicate on October 20.
Souns will perform at the Vancouver New Music Festival on October 23. Details on that event are available here.
